We spent about 7.5 hours there yesterday. The only thing that made my head not hurt was a full 1ML Dilaudid and even then, it is supposed to last 4-6 hours and my head hurt again after 2 hours. *sigh* Well, at least I now know they CAN'T give me enough painkillers for this headache to be tolerable. It isn't as if they are just being super stingy (which they are). I wonder if they could make me unconscious? That would be nice.|
Anyhow, they gave me 4 percocet to get me through today. You read correct. 4. As in 4 pills for the whole prescription. ROFL. Well, it isn't as if they gave me 80 my head would feel ok, so whatevah. I was dehydrated and the nurse blew out 3 veins before calling in the IV team so I have bruises all over my arms.
The good part is they gave me anti-nausea medication and steriods to help with my head being swelling *yes, I have a big ego, that's the problem*. They did a cat scan which showed a normal brain. They did labs, which I'm pleased to report came out well (go me, take those vitamins). They finally gave me another shot of toradol which meant I had 5 hours headache free last night. Then I awoke at 5am with a raging headache again and those @#$* birds tweeting tweeting. Hopefully I won't get roid rage or those birds will die for sure.
